[opensuse-buildservice] Building rpm with a unicode locale

As far as I can find, RPMs are always built using the C locale, which
is non-unicode. This breaks a lot of python packages, which use the
locale of the environment, and thus fail when it gets, for example,
utf-8 in a readme file (which is extremely common). Is there any way
to change the locale that rpm builds in to a utf8-based locale?
